1970s Hamilton Automatic Day-Date (Ref. 825001-3)

Hamilton was founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1882 and boasts a long and impressive history of breakthroughs in design and technology. While probably best known for their military associations and fantastic field watches, they've put out some really remarkable—and sometimes incredibly unique—outliers as well.

Case in point, this extremely '70s day-date. The chunky, shield-shaped case, red and black dial, and quirky day-date setup all come together perfectly to offer a very unique—and uniquely affordable—time capsule.

The unique, shield-shaped case has been gently polished and shows minimal signs of use. It comes with its original crown and the steel case back is very clean. The watch is supplied on a handmade 2pc leather strap.


The matte black dial looks fantastic for its age, showing very few elements of age. The chunky silver hour markers are separated by bright red rectangles for a pop of color, and complemented by the cigarette-style hour and minute hands. The lume has aged to a light cream color.


None. The watch is keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
